Groom Wedding Speech Tips

The groomís speech can be a challenge simply because many grooms arenít comfortable speaking in front of large audiences. That, on top of the excitement of being married and having had a few drinks can often times create a recipe for disaster. Fortunately, as the groom you can prepare a speech that is short and sweet and control your alcohol intake until afterwards. The party will last all night long so donít worry about missing out before the toasts!

When it comes to writing the groomís speech there are several things you will want to keep in mind. First of all, you want to thank the groomsmen and the bridesmaids for being part of your special day. It costs a lot of money to be part of someoneís wedding party and because of this you will want to make sure they know how much you appreciate them.

Next, you need to address your parents, the guests, the in-laws, and last but not least your new bride. This is the moment to make her fall in love with you all over again and just a few special words are all she needs to hear to know that she made the right decision in marrying you and that you really are the man of her dreams!

Writing your wedding speech may be something you put off until the very end until there is no time left. And while under pressure some great speeches have been written it really is a better idea to take your time and write the speech in as much advance of the wedding as possible. When you have a base to work with then you can make changes as you go along.

A good rule of thumb is to create your first draft a month before the wedding and then every weekend read over the speech, make changes, and practice it a few times. By the time the wedding rolls around you will be a pro and have a great stress-free wedding speech!

Most men arenít very sappy, but wedding speeches require just a little. So, sit down and think of a defining moment in your relationship with your new bride that wowed you. It could be the moment you first saw her or the moment you decided to ask her to marry you. Come up with something romantic, sweet, and sappy, and the guests, and most importantly your new bride, will melt!
